About Georgette Hayter
Why Georgette Hayter chose Sa Pobla
“ My husband and I fell in love with Mallorca many years ago, the diversity of the countryside, the lovely people and the delicious food. It was quite by accident that we found our gorgeous little villa, tucked away as it is, and as we preferred to have our own quiet and enjoy the countryside but still be able to quickly visit friends, events and good restaurants in the more touristy areas of Mallorca, it seemed a perfect location for us to move to in the future. Currently our rather intense work schedule means that we cannot (yet) realise our dream of retiring to Mallorca and so we hope that in the mean time others will be able to enjoy Casa Carmel”
What makes this Villa unique
The house has a real feel of a retreat with its very private walled garden, "gin and tonic" organic lemon tree and inviting swimming pool, all hidden away behind the front gates and a thick screen of mature trees; So although you are in a little neighbourhood of well kept houses, once you are at the house, it is as though you are all alone in the lush countryside of the real Mallorca. The house is family oriented with open plan living space The bedrooms are separated from the main living areas by both a door and a passageway, ensuring that any early risers do not disturb any late sleepers. The house is simple but has a real feeling of warmth and a homey feel about it, I hope that you enjoy staying there as much as we do”

The villa was very well kept , extremely well equipped , very comfortable and the pool was excellent
Our stay lived up to all our expectations and was very much enjoyed by the whole family .
Great house, fabulous pool
We very much enjoyed our stay at this house, which is in a quiet residential area. The house is large and well-equipped, with everything needed for cooking and dining, as well as a good selection of games to play. The air con in the dining room is very useful on hot nights, but we found that the fans were perfectly adequate at night in the bedrooms. The pool is a very good size and the water temperature meant you could enjoy swimming for extended periods. There are plenty of sunloungers and towels, and we also enjoyed swimming at night with the pool lights on. Although there is nothing in walking range, everything we needed or wanted to visit was very close by car. The local village has some lovely restaurants in and around the main square, as well as a useful supermarket. We would recommend this property.
We had a fabulous time here
Everything as described. Georgette was very helpful and informative pre booking and all the way through. Good villa info provided. Easy driving directions and easy to locate. Good location very convenient for Puerto pollensa easy 15 min drive and Palma easy 30 minute drive.
Nice clean accommodation and gardens. Lovely pool. Safe and secure property whilst not overlooked.
If you don't know Majorca good base to travel or if you want a quiet rest it's ideal
Easy local supermarket or plenty local restaurants but all need car not really walking distance unless you don't mind a hike.
Things to improve : prefer decent BBQ was a bit small for 6 adults and although was very hot when we went anyway still would prefer air con in bedrooms.
Use mosquito plug ins and spray. Because it's surrounded by trees and bushes I guess they like it
Overall 6 adults, 6 year old and baby had good time we were even able to entertain 4 adult friends who were in Country same time and could all sit down to eat outside.
High chair and cot good.
We took our own dvds but there are loads there don't expect the most recent. Tv sat and DVD took some working out perhaps add instructions and label remotes for those not technical. Also hundreds of sat channels perhaps a list of most popular ones would help locate but to be honest we only watched a bit of news and sport.
Hi Stephanie, Thank you for your review. Yes, we have down for next year a BBQ update, mosquito nets - unfortunately the mozzies always come when there is a little rain in the middle of the summer or in spring and autumn when the weather varies. I will mark the TV/DVD remotes this winter - many thanks for the tip. Air conditioning upstairs and an upgrade of the downstairs units is on the cards for next season! Glad you enjoyed your holiday and hope to welcome you back in the future. thank you :-)
Très belle maison au calme
Très belle maison bien équipée au calme. Superbe piscine, tout était parfait.
Merci Beaucoup!! Glad you enjoyed your holiday. Thank you for leaving the villa in a beautifully clean condition. We hope to welcome you again to Casa Carmel in the future :-)
I love that holiday!
We had a lovely holiday in this house - five adults and a six year old. The child says "I love that holiday it was the best week ever!" We all loved the house and garden, all was clean and as advertised, easy to find with the directions given, spacious and nicely furnished. The main thing was that it seemed like a home, rather than a holiday rental, with lots of extras like things for the pool, towels, kitchen utensils, DVDs, etc, and plenty of wardrobe space. The pool was lovely and we especially loved eating our meals on the balcony which seemed perfect even in 36 degrees! A car is definitely needed here as the housing area is not within the local town but its easy to get to everything on the island as its quite close to the motorway. The town is very old school Mallorquin which was a treat, and of course the island itself is stunning. At night we did all get bitten by mosquitos a lot and didn't seem to be able to keep them away despite many anti-mosquito plugs provided by the hosts and brought with us so I would suggest mosquito nets for anyone sensitive to them. But you can't have everything!
Many thanks for your review! So glad you loved the house! Yes, the unseasonal hot weather and humidity has meant more mosquitos this year than usual. We will indeed provide mosquito nets for next season and hope that this will help. Hope to welcome you again to Casa Carmel in the future!
A great home from home
A fabulous holiday! Lovely villa in a quiet little residential town. Very close to pollensa and alcudia, and not far from the beach. A great base for exploring aslong as you have a car. Perfect facilities for our young families. Very clean and every need catered for. Georgette was very helpful and accommodating to our needs. Would defiantly reccomebd to families and would love to return again!
Many thanks for your review and so glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to welcome you back in the future!
Special interest holidays:
Excellent base for all sports the island offers such as walking, hiking, climbing, biking, all water-sports, horse-riding, golf etc.. Only 12km to muro beach and 16km to Puerto Pollensa beach
10-15 minutes drive to the beaches of Pto. Pollensa, Alcudia and Playa Muro
35 minutes to Palma international airport. A car would be essential at this property as there is not restaurants/bars/shops within walking distance as it is located in a residential area between Pollensa and Sa Pobla
Approximate distances: 35 minutes to the airport, 6 minutes to Pollensa old town, 10/15minutes to Alcudia/Puerto Alcudia, 5 minutes to Sa Pobla, 12 minutes to Puerto Pollensa
Casa Carmel is located in a residential area. There are some lovely walks around the area and the little chapel of Crestatx is very pretty and worth a visit. The nearest supermarkets, restaurants and bars etc..are approximately a 5 minute drive so it is essential to have a hire car during your stay at the villa as you won't be able to walk to the local shops.
